This elegant and comfortable 16" wide x 2.75" deep archtop is traditionally appointed with a laminated spruce top, laminated flame maple back and sides, and an ebony fingerboard and bridge. The tonality is beefy and round with just the right amount of lively stringiness to make it perfect for plectrum and fingerstyle Electroacoustic music.

Conceptually in the tradition of archtop jazz guitars, the GCS-16-1 imparts the girth of tone that only a guitar body with ample air space can achieve. That said, the 16” x 2.75” body remains very comfortable, has quickness in response, and offers a pleasing amount of acoustic presence. The body size also helps reduce potential for feedback and the built-in full size humbucker creates smooth and well balanced amplified tonalities. As a jazz guitar the GCS-16-1 does everything you want it to do and fingerstyle players will appreciate the lofty overtones imparted by the laminated Spruce top. Comes with a TKL hard-shell case.
